Shredding guitar solos? Yes, please. Classic rock band 38 Special brought back 30-year-old memories without giving up the energy of youth when the band. It took the stage Monday at the Lorain County Fair. Frontman Don Barnes screamed, “Hurry up boy or you’re gonna be late!” into the mic on “Back to Paradise” while Danny Chauncey worked magic fingers up and down the fretboard on “Wild-Eyed Southern Boys.” The concert opened the 171st Annual Lorain County Fair. “This is the place to be on a Monday night,” Barnes pumped up the filled grandstand crowd as the sun started to set.
